Math Unit 1: Numbers 0-5

The first month of school we worked on the following:

Count to 100 by ones and by tens.

Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.

Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.

Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).

Here are some of the hands-on activities we did!

1. We played Count Around the Circle. This is a simple game where we sit in a circle and pass a ball around while taking turns counting. I say 1, the next student says 2, etc. We start out just going around once, but by the end of the year, we get to 100 pretty quickly.

2. We wrote the numbers 1, 2, and 3, and glued craft pompoms onto them for number recognition.

3. We created our own number cards from 1-10.

4. We made a counting fish song chart like this one I found on Pinterest.

5. We danced and sung along to the counting songs by Have Fun Teaching. Another favorite Count-to-100 video is Let's Get Fit.

6. We made our own 10 Black Dots class book.

7. We also made a class number book with tissue paper squares.

8. We played 10 Frame BINGO, available on Teachers Pay Teachers.

9. We played NCTM's 10 Frame Game on our SMART Board. First, as a whole group, and later, as an independent center.

10. We used crayon to write the numbers 1-10, and then painted over it with watercolor.

11. We practiced writing the numbers 1-10 on whiteboards while saying the Number Writing Chants.

12. We rainbow wrote the numbers. Kids who needed more practice spent some extra time with me and a whiteboard.

15. We read and acted out counting books, like Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.
